Following on from Memoirs of a Tree, performed at last year’s InTRANSIT festival, Natasha Langridge returns in 2016 with another immersive monologue inspired by local life. In Memory of Leaves describes Natasha’s experience living in a block of flats on the Portobello Road council estate, which is being torn down by developers, and how all of her surroundings and green spaces are rapidly changing.

I’m currently working on a play about 18th Century female Pyrates for The National Theatre Studio in London. My main focus is Ann Bonny, an Irish pyrate, born around 1700 who operated in the Carribbean and was one of only several noted women in the business of piracy.

She is, without doubt, my pyrate queen!
